ADRA Philippines takes a comprehensive approach to emergency management:
- By working with communities to prepare for and mitigate the impact of disasters through a Disaster Risk Reduction program as part of its ongoing development initiatives
- By partnering with local groups to provide immediate assistance when an emergency hits;
- By working with the affected people to help them recover after the crisis has passed through early recovery interventions.
We place great importance on building local capacity and long-term resilience to external shocks. We are committed to meeting international standards of quality, accountability and community participation.
A National Emergency Management Plan facilitates an immediate response to a range of emergencies with funding from ADRA International, the ADRA Asia Regional Office and local church partner.
